Who’s your favorite author?

September 9, 2008 at 10:25 am 1 comment

Do you have one or many? I have many, each for their own style or “voice.”

Well, if you are truly passionate about an author, use this opportunity to tell them – and the world! 

From the most recent “WritingKid” Newsletter, check out this contest:

LETTERS ABOUT LITERATURE
http://www.loc.gov/loc/cfbook/letters/

The Center for the Book in the Library of Congress, in
partnership with Target Stores and in cooperation with
affiliate state centers for the book, invites readers in
grades 4 through 12 to enter Letters About Literature, a
national reading-writing contest. To enter, readers write
a personal letter to an author, living or dead, from any
genre– fiction or nonfiction, contemporary or classic,
explaining how that author’s work changed the student’s way
of thinking about the world or themselves. There are three
competition levels: Level I for children in grades 4 through
6; Level II for grades 7 and 8, and Level III, grades 9 – 12.
Winners, announced in the spring of each year, receive cash
awards at the national and state levels.
